i also get the opinion

This is the inevitably blog post abut twitter. I promise to keep it short. Rands explains twitter perfectly, explaining something that I had a hard time expressing to people not using twitter:

Where I used to use Google, I now use Twitter for questions, because not only do I get the answer, I also get the opinion.
And opinion, ladies and gentlement, is oh-so-important. I've learned, shared, given, gotten through having silly only-made-sense-at-the-moment conversations on twitter. Now back to regular blog postings about things other than twitter. I'm working on a post about "Flow".
